Angel Shade Deck
Marked Cards



Angel shade is a type of shade work that is in the league of its own. It is called angel shade because the work is put over the angel designs on the backs of Bicycle Rider Back cards. However, the formula for angel shade is actually somewhat different form the formula used for classic shade work. This is a highly professional work that is most likely to be used by top paper players. Let the suckers find the work on this one.

Since this work has been developed especially for the use in private blackjack games we sell these cards, by default, marked for blackjack betting or playing combinations.

  • two-way betting combination - A, 10, J, Q, K one way; other cards blanks
  • two-way playing combination - 9, 10, J, Q, K one way; other cards blanks
  • three-way betting combination - A one way; 10, J, Q, K another way; other cards blanks
  • three-way playing combination - A, 2, 3 one way; 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 blanks; 9,10, J, Q, K another way
  • four-way playing combination - A, 2, 3 one way; 4, 5, 6, another way; 7, 8, 9 blanks; 10, J, Q, K another way

Please make sure to specify which combination you desire, before placing your order. If you wish to have the cards marked for poker, we only offer a four-way combination, but in this case you have to specify exactly how to compile the cards into the desired combination. Usually, when this work is done for poker, only the high cards are marked.

It should be noted, however, that reading shade takes some practice. Some top paper players use exclusively shade. It is easy to read from arm's length or from across the table, yet almost impossible to detect by anyone that doesn't know what to look for. This is obviously the type of work that stood the test of time. In our opinion, the only types of work that are superior to shade are white flash and buzz.
